Format: Paperback
Winner of the Washington State Book Award, Light's Ladder reveals beneath the surface of the collective dream of family and serenity, the nearly un-nameable grief of losing a child to early death. In this his eighth collection, Christopher Howell's poems move with the rhythms of a soulful blues elegy whose artistic engine is precise and worshipful, and graced by a love that faces the unknowable with humble brokenness and enduring hope. Seamless, imbued with fire, Light's Ladder is a gift of understanding, even joy, in the midst of unrelenting sorrow.
